    Really great food. And we were able to catch our train on time,thanks to helpful staff. Very happy, nice atmosphere and a refreshingly short menu meaning food was fresh cooked. Veggie option was delicious

    We waited very long for the food only to realize that the waiter didn’t send the order to the kitchen. After the long wait the food was pretty average. There was no compensation for the wait at all.

    Good selection of dishes and correct preparation, however, not extraordinary. Friendly, attentive service. Original interior, cozy and celebratory atmosphere. Prices for certain dishes, such as selection of mezze are per person but this is not mentioned in the menu. For clarity, it would be better to clearly state it in the menu. Overall, good evening out!

    Great atmosphere. Very nice food. People are nice and welcoming. It’s a bit too crowded though perhaps due to the weekend.

    Excellent overall, with a unique gazpacho and pumpkin fritters. Prices seemed about average for current day Amsterdam but the food was superior, this was by far the best meal we had, and the place was not "touristy" though adjacent to Red Light circus scene. Fashionable, small bar scene on ground floor, with canal side tables. We dined upstairs, which is better culinary setting. Only negative is that they were out of my requested entree (lasagne), but we were a late reservation. Would gladly return.

    Everyone in our group of six was happy with their choice of food. The presentation was great and we all thought the food was terrific; and priced appropriately.

    Nice atmosphere, would be very good if you can have dinner also outside, now it’s only indoor and with this weather would be nice to have the option outside. Food very tasty, good portions and nice flavor. Service very good.

    The starter , sardines , was great. The hake was hopeless , very very bland and taste less. The service is great. But I kinda want my money back for the main course. The dessert was nice chocolate with ice cream.

Expect influences reaching from the bazaars of the Middle East to the seaside terraces of the Mediterranean. Everything sustainable and seasonal, of course.

You will find us in het middle of the Amsterdam Red Light District, alongside one of the oldest canals of the historic city centre. Feel every day welcome for lunch or (late) dinner.
